Fresh from a year-long redesign, Star Tours: The Adventure Continues opened to the general Disneyland California public over the weekend — just in time for the Summer season . . . and crowds. Fear not Star Wars fans, here are three reasons those long lines may be worth the wait.
- Guests can experience 54 different story lines in six possible destinations, including Tatooine and Hoth, so it's unlikely to experience the same adventure twice.
- With a 21st-century makeover, Star Tours now boasts 3D video (riders wear 3D glasses), HD screens, and an increased range of motion for the in-flight simulator.
- Stories bridge both Star Wars trilogies, so expect to run into both classic and newer characters. The upside? C-3PO is your co-pilot. The downside is Jar Jar Binks may stumble on the scene.
